I carried a watermelon…

I love watermelon. Its so refreshing and sweet. But I hate picking out all those fiddly seeds. Covered in juice, holes in my melon 😼, seeds all over the flipping place, I had an epiphany… can you eat the seeds? Surely if pumpkin seeds and all those other seeds are nutritious, then watermelon seeds might be too? And it turns out they are! Yippee! They are full of magnesium, folic acid, iron, protein, amino acids and omega 6.  Sprouted roasted watermelon seeds are even being touted as a superfood.  Yes, really.  That sounded like way too much hard work, so instead I nutribulleted them, and the result was AMAZING. Just add a couple of cubes of ice to thicken the texture up a little and you have a delicious and nutritious drink.  It would be particularly nice with a slug of vodka in it, too.

A perfect mid-afternoon pick-me-up, with or without the vodka.
